We did our share

Tonight, from 19:55 to 20:00 we turned off all our lights to express concern over global warming. It was neat. We watched the buildings across the street and as people turned off their lights, they came out onto their balconies. We waved at each other and felt connected. Here in Barcelona, the lights were turned off at the Sagrada Familia and other tourist buildings. In Paris, they turned off the lights at the Tour Eiffel.

Born and raised in Brazil, a Canadian stole my heart and took me to Canada in 1999. After seven years between Montreal and Toronto, we then moved to Barcelona, Spain, where I did research for my PhD thesis. This blog began as a chronicle of our adventures while living in Barcelona and exploring the old world and has acquired a life of its own after we moved back to Canada.

    About this initiative in France: It was good. Arnaldo Jabor talked about this in his chronic on tv. Bjs
